Ron Jaxon
Change for a Dollar by Ron Jaxon

This effect is hard to describe. It's a very unusual version of the classic mismade bill in which the bill is folded in half then you cause the crease in the bill to move to a different edge. When the bill is unfolded you have a very unusual looking bill. Fold it in quarters and move the new crease to another edge and the bill looks even more unusual. Then you return everything back to normal and return the bill to it's owner.

You really should watch the demo video below to get the full effect. The demo video runs through the entire routine very quickly to keep the video short but you can...

John Scarne
The Odds Against Me by John Scarne

If he'd had a touch of larceny in him, he could have been the number one card sharp of all time. Instead, the author of these fabulous memoirs, born to a mother who considered gambling the "devil's tool," puts his extraordinary gifts to far different purpose.

He has used his incredible gambling sense, his miraculously dexterous fingers, his brilliant mathematical mind, his fascination with carnival and gambling life, to become America's number one authority on gambling and odds.

He was the greatest practitioner and analyst of card and dice sleight of hand. His artistry impressed FDR as...

Peter Duffie
Mental Deflect by Peter Duffie

Mental Deflect was inspired by John Bannon's Twisted Sisters. The different methodology allows Aces to be used rather than court cards. Very Easy to Do! Watch a demo.

As a bonus you get in the same ebook Downfall, which is Peter's version of Roy Walton's classic packet trick, Cascade. Downfall is available also individually for a bit less. Watch a demo.

Ron Jaxon
Outsmokin by Ron Jaxon

A Hilarious cigarette routine for smokers or nonsmokers. No matter what the magician does he can't get the right end of the cigarette in his mouth. Even when he tears the filter off, it magically appears back on the wrong end of the cigarette. Visually stunning and always gets laughs. Watch a demo video below.

Effect
The magician decides to take a cigarette break. Just as he's about to light the cigarette he realizes that the cigarette is in his mouth backwards. So he does the obvious and flips the cigarette end for end and puts it back into his mouth. To his surprise the filter is still...

Dariel Fitzkee
The Trick Brain by Dariel Fitzkee

This is book two from Fitzkee's trilogy and is unlike any other book ever written on magic. It was the first book (and to my knowledge the only book) to attack magic methods from a scientific standpoint. Fitzkee develops here a classification of effects, from appearances to vanishes, and then describes a system to invent or develop new trick plots. This is an invention system. I would say it is one way to invent new trick plots. But even if you are not of the scientific sort, the classification and discussion of magic effects and methods is a tremendous resource to expand your horizon and think...

Dariel Fitzkee
Magic by Misdirection by Dariel Fitzkee

This volume, book three in the trilogy, is all about the psychology in magic. Mechanics alone, a sleight or move, are not sufficient to produce a strong magic effect. Dexterity by itself is more like juggling. Only if misdirection, the psychological aspect of deception, is added into the mix, will one be able to create a truly magic experience.

There aren't many good works on misdirection. This is one of the must read ebooks, a classic in the theory of magic. A shorter but modern discussion of misdirection can be read in Pocket Power by Jarle Leirpoll.

Dariel Fitzkee
Showmanship for Magicians by Dariel Fitzkee

Dariel Fitzkee authored one of the best trilogies on magic theory. This volume, book one in the trilogy, primarily deals with theoretical aspects of a magic performance. This book has been cited numerous times and is one of the standard works every serious magician should read. Fitzkee has a very analytical mind and describes his thoughts clearly. As with any theory not everyone will agree with every detail and every suggestion. Regardless of if you fully subscribe to Fitzkee's thinking or not, there is plenty to learn from his writings.

Ron Jaxon
Flip-M-Out by Ron Jaxon

Here is what Ron himself has to say about this ebook:

If I where asked to perform one trick to someone to show my ability as a close up magician. This routine is the one I’d show them. It’s my number one reputation making magic routine and I get more requests to perform “the coin trick” from both laymen and magicians then any other trick I perform. The reason for this is simple. It’s very powerful magic!

Here are a few reasons why:

  • The magic happens in the spectator’s hands.
  • It's done with common objects (coins)
  • Each phases seems more impossible then the one before. ...

R. Shane
Symbolics by R. Shane

These are three self-working routines with ESP cards with the general theme 'impossible coincidences', facilitated by a cyclic stack. (Two effects are based on work by Werner Miller from his Ear-Marked book, and one routine is from Shane's book Automata.)

As always with Shane, you don't just get a routine and method, but the reasons why these routines work, what is important and how you can change or alter them to suit your needs and make them your own.

In Search of Synchronicity
A deck of ESP is shown, shuffled, and cut. The spectator cuts the deck several times, finally stopping whenever she wants, and removes the...

R. Shane
Portents by R. Shane

These are two mentalism/bizarre routines from Shane's book Pentalogy.

The End of the World as We Know It
Is the old "triple prediction" plot, but turned upside down. In this routine, the spectator predicts the exact date and method of the end of the world. Yes, it really is as weird as it sounds.

Bones, Modern and Cold
Combines cold-reading through an easily-learned (and unique) divination system with a classic sleight-of-hand trick to drive home the real purpose of divination and fortune-telling.

Mutus Nomen Yadda Yadda Yadda
Is Shane's presentation for Judah’s handling of the classic 20-card trick (minus the memorization, plus an outright eerie revelation).

Gods of Chaos Slapped Silly
Is a re-working of a Robert Neale’s "Probability Pack" where one impossibility appears after the other from a shuffled deck.

Impossible Matters by R. Shane

These are two very interesting self-working effects, both based on topological principles. You do not need to learn any math or remember a whole lot to perform these two stunning effects. (These two effects have been taken from Shane's books Automata and Pentalogy.)

Paradoxical Oddities
A packet of cards, the twenty cards making up a royal flush, is given to a spectator to shuffle. The spectator then chooses one of the values (say, for example, Jacks), and the cards mixed so that some are face up and some face down. The packet is further mixed by the spectator, eventually being divided into...

Cut! by R. Shane

A card routine that is murder. This ain’t your usual card trick. Anyone who knows Shane and his work knows he likes to tell stories with my magic. Old stories, new stories, morality tales, dirty jokes...it’s all brain fodder as far as he's concerned. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a shock that “Cut!” is story. But it’s a grisly little tale ending with a bloody murder. Probably not a good routine for restaurant work. But it is a good routine for those moments when you want to entertain and shock your audience a bit, and audience whose sensibilities can handle a little blood flowing...
